This region has the potential for discovery of new copper porphyry deposits. Data generated by the Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources shows that copper production from this region accounts for 60% of the total US national annual production. A number of important mines occur within the region.

Stratton’s President and CEO, Greg McCunn, said:

“With exploration drilling commencing late last week on the MAC Project and now underway at Bear Canyon, we are on track to rapidly advance two of our exploration properties. Bear Canyon represents an opportunity for a significant new copper discovery on a very prolific and active copper belt.”
